Interesting that they've dropped "Version" from the titles

Nintendo and Gamefreak have, for the first time decided not to call their mainline games Pokemon [] version. They're just Pokemon X and Pokemon Y.

What could that mean? If anything at all?

Maybe because they're no longer just "versions" of the same game. Maybe each one has it's own plot and very different region layout.

Or maybe they just got tired of typing it, I know I got tired of saying it before long

It was Nintendo of America and Europe who did it, not GameFreak. Japan has always just been Pokémon <Name>.

I figure they dropped it after B2W2 when they made the games Pokémon Black Version 2 and White Version 2 where they realised it was ridiculous

Pokemon X version sounds kind of porny.

Pokemon Y version, well imagine Consuela from Family Guy trying to buy it. It would sound like "White Version" too much.

Black and White aren't colors, but that's off-topic
